Police officers, firefighters help in fight against hunger (PHOTOS)
Jersey City police officers and firefighters donned ShopRite aprons and got behind registers to help fight food insecurity.
The volunteers participated in the supermarket chain’s “Help Bag Hunger” campaign on Thursday, Sept. 20, as part of National Hunger Action month.
ShopRite customers also got involved as they were asked to round up the price of their total purchase as a donation to help fill the shelves of local food banks.
Since its inception in 1999, ShopRite Partners In Caring has donated $48 million to local food banks in support of more than 2,200 charities that feed the hungry in communities served by ShopRite stores.
